Are you sure you are using SMB over the internet and not WebDAV?

Yes, I used WebDAV for the demo. I don't have an accessible other local machine right now. My other machine is taking a sabbatical.

But I'm pretty sure that file shared across the local LAN were cached locally going right back to NT4. The first connections were always slow; and directory listings were never cached back then, so they were also slow; but individual file metadata was cached and reopening a remote file was always quicker the second time around.

You are right about Vista/SMB2 though. Reading around, it seems to have improved things a lot through the use of bigger reads; coalesced commands and overlapped IO.
